, and it's been misused, it's been mistaught. it's a phrase that is not contained in the u.s. constitution. as we have discussed before, it's from a letter that thomas jefferson wrote to the connecticut baptist when they feared the government might be getting between them and the way they worship. because baptist, that wasn't popular in connecticut at the time. they say wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. so what did he mean by that? does it mean that the state needs to be protected from the awe-inspiring power of the force? or it is possible the army of maurding pastors and nuns -- if you see the nuns coming after the state, look out. could it be the nuns and the bishops suddenly without warning will seize control of the government in some sort of creepy christian coup? no, i don't think so. for the record it's called "establishment clause." why is it called the establishment clause? it's in the first amendment. the establishment clause. this is what it says. congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. that's it. congress shall ma

to join us on tv today. >> gold coins. you know what else? they have chocolate in the middle. >> the great scandal of 2010. thank you, keith. >>> thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. we begin tonight with the great unveiling. house republicans held their bik big take your jacket off photo op today to prevent their agenda for this election year. it was a bit of a flop. not in terms of the photo-op. the photo-op looks awesome. the blue shirts, it's amazing. no problem there. but the reception it received, that greeted it upon arrival was blunt and not positive. their big election year pledge was called, drek and pablum and full of glaring contradictions. also, milquetoast. those were things from people on the right. those terms were from the most popular, heavily trafficked red wing blog, red state and for the club for growth. if you are in the business of trying to figure out what might happen if republicans win the elections, the most important thing to note is that the pledge is of very little help for mapping out the impact on the country if all these republicans
of the politico. thanks so much. go statesman. that's "hardball." thanks for being with us. right notice time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show." tonight, live from minneapolis, these stories on the table and hit my hot buttons at this hour. how about this, glenn beck's got a crush on republican governor chris christie, when christie's not bullying teachers he's trying to bully voters. i'll talk to a voter who sparred with christie in just a moment. >>> and speaking of beck, he's the one saying, violence is going to be coming from the left? well, a male sharron angle supporter tea partier reportedly punched a female harry reid supporter during a candidate forum last night. oh, yeah! radio talk show host heidi harris was there, and we'll get that story and get some rapid fire response. >>> and tea partier christine o'donnell, ben quail and demon sheep have one thing in common. details coming up in "the playbook" tonight and the congress's just done something really big in dealing with manipulation occurrencewe china. we'll have that stor
're going to attend the dedication. senator harkin said republicans won't let us do it? what about the political fall-out if republicans were on tv not letting democrats pass tax cuts for the middle class? >> i was in the hall talking to harkin about that. again, now, harkin is a liberal democrat who normally would be gung-ho to do this. but i was astonished by what he said, that the republicans won't let us do it. the democrats are in charge of the senate. if harry reid wanted to bring up the bill that would allow tax cuts to be kept for everybody under 250 and raise it on that incremental amount, harry reid could bring it up. the republicans would filibuster it. there would be a vote. that could happen if they wanted to do it. but there aren't enough democrats in the caucus of democrats in the senate who are willing to do it. and there's nothing more i can say. they are afraid to do it. and they're afraid of the ads the republicans are going to run against them. >> howard finemann, as always, thanks for your time. >>> let's turn to chris hayes, the washington editor of the nation
